Y is for Yeti

Yetis, and Crypto-zoology in general was a big fad in the late '70s - early '80s period when I was growing up. It seemed like every kid I knew had the time-life series on Mysterious Creatures, and could go on for hours about that week's episode of In Search of... or Ripley's Believe It or Not (with Real Man Jack Palance, not late-'90s washout Dean Cain) The world seemed so much more grand and mysterious in those days, and I actually kind-of miss it. Yes, Google maps is an amazing tool, and the Internet can be very useful, but the sense of wonder that was engendered by reading those books and not knowing what every foot of the earth looks like made life just that much more fun!
